International Trade and Investment Forum Budapest

International Trade and Investment Forum Budapest is the brand event of Active Businessmen Association. This year’s event focuses on Agriculture, Food industry and Related Machinery and is held on 16-17 November 2015 in Budapest, Hungary.

International Trade and Investment Forum Budapest provides win-win statement for its participants. First, the forum aims to build a business platform for potential participants to sell and purchase relevant goods. Additionally, it helps to build a solid basis for future business cooperation among the participant companies.

In this framework, international participants will be able to meet with new local suppliers with competitive prices whose goods are compliant with EU quality standards. 

The forum is held in 2 days. The first day includes 1 hour-long opening ceremony and extended B2b meetings lasting around 4 hours in two sections. One company can have up to 12 meetings during B2b sections. On the second day, local companies will have a chance to personally host the guest companies with whom they managed to initiate a preliminary discussion in the first day. The rest of the international participants will collectively be invited to the site visits of food processing factories in countryside.
